SOS from Saudi Arabia: Rights activist and dissident Sheikh Nimr facing execution

SOS from Saudi Arabia: Rights activist and dissident Sheikh Nimr facing execution

Sheikh NimrAn outspoken dissident against the oppressive Saudi regime, Sheikh Nimr Baqir Al-Nimr is facing imminent execution.  The Saudi prosecutor wants to literally crucify him for speaking against the regime.

All those who support the Right to Free Speech should support Sheikh Nimr’s immediate release.

A charismatic speaker, Sheikh Nimr has courageously stood up to the Saudi regime and has exposed their double standards.  In particular, he has exposed the ingrained Salafist bigotry of deflecting any criticism of Saudi Arabia as an Iranian/Persian/Safavi conspiracy.

This is the typical tactic of Deobandi and Salafi bigots and if often used by Tarek Fatah types of selective activists, who hide their anti-Shia bigotry under a thinly disguised pseudo liberal veneer.

This youtube clip is probably one of the main reasons why a dissident activist is facing execution in a repressive State like Saudi Arabia.  In a moving account, Sheikh Nimr speaks of a life of constant, daily oppression faced by him and countless others in Saudi Arabia.

That Saudi Arabia is an ally of the United States in Europe is something that needs to be revised.

We request our readers to update this change.org petition that calls for Sheikh Nimr’s immediate release and launch a another one.

(Excerpt from the older petition which now stands closed after 7,000+ signatories)

We are shocked very much observing the silence and lack of action from the international community regarding the situation in Saudi Arabia. These people who are from regions like Qatif in Saudi Arabia are barred from their inalienable right to religious and political dissent. There are thousands of political prisoners in the Saudi dungeons who expect people like yourself to react and stand up for the one thing which all of us share, the unbreakable bond of humanity.

To this religious and political discrimination came a man who wanted to help, represent and give a voice to his people. Ayatollah Nimr Al-Nimr was shot and arrested and is currently in prison and being denied medical care since last year. Prosecutors are now pushing for the execution of this man on these political and religious grounds.

There is also a Free Sheikh Nimr Facebook page

By taking a stand against one of the most repressive and hate mongering regime on the planet, Sheikh Nimr faces death. No person of conscience can choose to ignore this.  Please start using the #FreeSheikhNimr tag and get the word out.

Our worst enemy is our own apathy.

  1. THE WHOLE WORLD IN GENERAL AND HUMAN RIGHTS ORGANIZATIONS IN PARTICULAR HAVE A MORAL DUTY TO DO THEIR BEST TO PRESSURIZE THE SAUDI SAVAGES TO RELEASE THE GRAND AYATULLAH.

  2. The Saudi rulers still have the same mentality which was characteristic of the UMAYYAD rulers of the late 7th century or the OTTOMAN kings of the 16th century. They are uncivilized savages claiming that the are Muslims although the have nothing to do with the teachings of the PROPHET of Islam. They have framed their own laws which serve no purpose but to lengthen their own rule. I ask the world community as to which law allows a state to execute someone only because they speak against the government. SO THE WORD COMMUNITY HAS A MORAL DUTY TO STOP THE SAUDI MONARCHY FROM CARRYING OUT SUCH AN ACT OF IGNORANCE CRUELTY AND INJUSTICE AND TO PRESSURIZE THE SAUDIES TO RELEASE SHAIKH NIMR BAQIR AL NIMR.
